    Jayadev I dont think there is any circular from FIAT regarding any replacement. If at all there is, it would be with the TASS only. Has there been a redesigned plastic one ? Don't you have any other TASS there where you can get this checked ? One another option is many of us can provide you the bill copy which shows the CSC replaced under warranty FOC. Else you may have to travel a longer way -You have to start mailing FIAT officials & do a frequent followup to get it resolved. I believe only in major cities, TASS is promoting free upgrade where by they call up the customer & ask em to come for a replacement.

    Thanks to TFI and member Italia-linea (Amit).I checked it myself . yes the one I found is redesigned one.
    looking at it chances of breakage is very rare it looks tough and well made.still I don't want to take chances.
    I have booked my Punto for 20th of this month for the "airbag failure" checkup and I will ask them to sort out the csc too.

    Static energy

    I am getting irritating static current when I touch car after getting off from the car.

    On internet I got info that, if we get off with bare foot, static energy is earthed

    Getting off with bare foot is not possible because of manners & etiquets.

    Is there any other solution to discharge the static energy from our body?

    Or anyother solution to prevent storage of static energy in our body?

    Bhai you are such an electric personality. I'm sure it is due to that you experience static current shocks.

    I also experience the same with the Palio D, but never with the Linea. ;)

    you can Use those plastic mats .. cuz when you won't rub your foot on OE mats, you won't generate static electricity...
    another silly idea is to jump off the car with both feet :D ... but that is just impossible cuz of low seating of punto

    I am not sure what the temperature in your area is, but static energy is normally more prominent during the winters in North India (with all wool gear and other things on). You can try touching some metal object that is grounded after getting down from the car and then touch the car. That should help reduce the static
